Kenya National Parks.
 

MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE
Masai Mara is located in East Africa and covers an area of 1500 sq km approximately. Masai Mara is known as the “Jewel of Africa”, a national reserve with the largest and the most spectacular wildlife migration in the world . It is situated on Maasai land. With a concentration of game superseding most national parks in Africa, Kenya, the Masai Mara offers an 'Out of Africa' experience.


Masai Mara National Reserve's varied topography ranges from woodland to savannah grassland to reverine forest, and encompasses a great
diversity of wildlife including the “Big Five” i.e. lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino. The Masai Mara In Kenya is a must for all first time safari game viewers. While safari game viewing at Masai Mara National Reserve, the tracks cover every corner of the Mara reserve; game viewing on foot or specially on Masai Mara balloon safari adds an exciting dimension to your African safari. Within the boundaries of the reserve and just outside, there are several Masai Mara safari lodges and camps.
 
AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK
Amboseli is almost as popular as the Masai Mara, and is located on the southern side of Kenya near the Tanzania border . From Amboseli, there are superlative views of snow topped Mount Kilimanjaro where you can experience the Kilimanjaro Amboseli balloon safari. The marshlands and rich grasses of the central area have large concentrations of wildlife. Amboseli is a place of stark contrast. Meaning a "place of water" in Maasai.
 
 
Amboseli is a spectacular national park to visit in its own right. It is not just the wildlife that attract visitors to Amboseli In Kenya but also the magical Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa at 5,985m (19,340 ft). Though Kilimanjaro seems so close from Amboseli flat open plains, its peak is almost 60 km (37 miles), and also across the Tanzania border making it a must destination when extending out for a Tanzania safari into Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Lake Manyara and Tarangire.
 
SAMBURU NATIONAL RESERVE
Samburu lies north of Nairobi, adjoining with Buffalo Springs and Shaba National Reserve. The lifeline of these three reserves is the palm fringed Uaso Nyiro River that attracts vast and varied herds of game, abundant bird life to its crocodile and hippo infested waters. Samburu National Reserve has an endless pageant of wildlife with frequent nocturnal visits from the leopard family right from the door of your safari lodge or camp in Samburu.
 
 
The higher hills at the south end of Samburu reserve offers lovely views of the Uaso Nyiro River. Crocodiles at this river hibernate during the dry
seasons when the river dies up. There are quite a few safari lodges and camps. The famous Samburu Lodge and its crocodile bar offers the chance to get within kissing distance of these man eaters, with only a foot high fence keeping them from nibbling on one's toes. These crocodiles exceed six meters (20 ft) from snout to tail.
 
ABERDARE NATIONAL PARK
Running south to north for 60 km through the Central Highlands area are the magnificent Aberdare mountains, nearly 800 sq km of which have been set aside as the Aberdare National Park. The volcanic heights are part of the Great Rift Valley's eastern rampart, and their lower slopes support a fine diversity of wildlife, including elephants and a number of rare animals such as the shy and lovely bongo antelope.
 
 
Wildlife is abundant at the Aberdares. Alongside the road are many places where elephants have dug into the soil with their trunks in search of salt. Buffalos, baboons and impalas are the commonly found. Leopards could be found near the Wanderis Gate. Four species of sunbird and over two hundred other species inhabit Aberdare National Park. Whether you can identify each bird or not, you will appreciate their call, color and activity which are all diverse and unique.
 
LAKE NAIVASHA
Lake Naivasha is one of Kenya most beautiful small Rift Valley Lakes to visit for your African safari. It is surrounded by feathery papyrus, marshy
lagoons and grassy shores where distorted flocks of graceful flamingoes and pink backed pelican settle on the water.
 
 
From Lake Naivasha, one can take a boat to the Crescent Island, a private game sanctuary where you can walk around the island and view at close range, zebra, waterbuck, giraffe and several species of antelope. Hippos are seen and heard during your boat ride. Bird life around
